Having problems with your Maytag Dishwashers ?

I have an MDB6701AWS3, The buttons on the panel stop working. I see that the ribbon that connects to the control board has a brown tar like substance on it, or it could burned. How likely is this my problem, instead of the control board? Thank You

Continuous running I have taken on board solutions already published on the site re possible controll panel damage etc. But I would like to check that the waste water pump isn't blocked before dismantling the controll panel. Could you describe how to access the pump to check it out. Thanks Rogspeed

'Dead' DU1100XTP The dishwasher will not start - no lights at all - no indication that anything's working (although I confirmed the unit has power). I've seen numerous posts regarding the control board - is there a problem with these in general? My unit is just beyond the warranty (naturally!) so I'd like to know if there's been any concession made by the manufacturer due to the number of problems. I'd gladly replace the board if Whirlpool would send me one. Thanks.

Judging from the information on this forum and others, we think we need to replace the control module on our Bosch dishwasher (she45m05uc/50). The general consensus seems to be that the module has an underrated relay and will burn out again. Has the board been redesigned? Is there a newer board that would work in our model? Bosch says that only part number 676962 will work. Thanks for your help, Deb

Hi I have a maytag quiet series 300 with model # MDBTT60AWW and it will not start. All the lights lite up but it will not start. I recently just had to replace an element due to a recall so when he was hear fixing the element I asked him what he thinks could be the problem and he said it sounds like it possibly needs a new control panel. Does this sound right and if so do you know where I can get a control panel. Thanks for your help

I have unresponsive touch pad, blinks, but the dishwasher does not come on. do I need to replace the control board? or the touch pad? it's a new machine and we have only used about 10 times since we had it. This is the second dishwasher we have purchased. Could it be there's a power serge burning out the boards? Should DW be on a GCFI outlet?

SHU 5316 UC dishwasher by bosch. I think it is from about 1998 or 99. It blew a circuit breaker yesterday. I reset the circuit braker, but it won't even power on. It may have burned something out. We replaced the control board 2 years ago. Please tell us: 1. Is it worth fixing again, or just replace? 2. Any suggestios? Maybe the pump has shorted? THANKS SO MUCH!! Mark


Hi Mark -There's no internal fuse in this dishwasher, so if there's no power you may well be looking at a new control unit and probably another major component as well, depending on what caused the overload or short. The most likely ... Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

I have a Bosch SHE44C02UC/46 that will finish all of the cycle but leaves a couple inches of water in the bottom. If I pull out the dishwasher and manually active the drain pump float it will drain the remaining water out of the dishwasher. I heard about a cold solder joint on the main controller board but I am not sure if this could be the issue. Please advise wat advise you can. Thanks.

My Bosch SHY56A02 dishwasher won't fill....When cycle is started, it seems to pump water out but none in. Water feed is good....Added water manually and it pumps out immediately. Also, unit continues to run with door open...door switch is not jumpered. Could it be the fill valve? More likely the control module? Thanks for your help!

I have a dishlex 750 eco. The control panel has not lights, but the internal dishwasher light still works. The repair guy said it needs a new circuit board, and not worth fixing. He could sell a reco one cheaper, although this machine is old it has hardly done any work. any thoughts? thanks dave..


The tech is quite correct, with this unit, the best thing to do is nothing. You need to put any prospective money that was going to be used for repair into NEW one with a full warranty, that way you can be sure of a reliable unit.\015\012\015\ ... Dishwashers

WP DW Mod # GU1200XTLS0: this unit filled with water and just stopped running. I have power to the unit. The control panel does not light up at all. Its wierd that I have power to the board and all the wires seem to have power! No burnt spots and no burnt smell on the board.Hmmm! Door latch and switches all check ok. Oddly it seems like the line power to DW goes all the way thru the unit and back through the nutural wire. Could the motor windings be burnt out?

My dishwasher blades do not turn. I have replaced the water valve so water is getting into the unit. I have not however, cleaned out the area below the lower blade. Could this be the problem or does it sound like a motor problem? There was a bit of a burning smell up to this problem. Thanks.

Blowing fuse... We've replaced the overheating fuse located in the control board area about 5 times. It has just blown again after using the dishwaser one time--before it would go about a month before blowing the fuse. It seems to get about a few minutes away from completing the wash cycle and does not complete the draining process. Help!! We don't know what to do next--replacing the fuse is costing about $15 each time, before you know it we could have bought a new one! Thanks for the help. Ti


Tim, this blown fuse issue was pretty common on this model. Whirlpool, which made this model came out with a fuse kit that included a terminal and heavier guage wire to eliminate this problem. It just splices right into the control board, easy job. T ... Kenmore 17024 Built-in Dishwasher

Hello, I've been working on a Bosch Dishwasher. It has no display of any kind, and there's a strange grunting sound coming from the wash motor when power is applied (like if you had just plugged it in), as if it's trying to start. The junction box is getting 120V, all connections to the junction box are fine, and the display board and the main control board are all getting the proper voltage. Now, we've already replaced the main control board and the problem persists. The tech line suggested
